People ask, “What will happen in the future?”
They ask about future prophecies.
Rather than future prophecies, this site focuses on prophecies that have already been fulfilled.
Jesus will return in the Second Coming, even so come Lord Jesus, but this site does not focus on those prophecies.
The prophecies about Jesus Christ were spoken by different people with different callings in life…priest, king, shepherd, as well as prophet. These individuals lived in different places at different times in history. After the fall of Adam and Eve, the Lord God himself sovereignly gave the first prophecy in Genesis 3:15.
Genesis 3:15 (KJV) And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.
The requirements for a true prophet were strict.
Deuteronomy 18:20 But the prophet who speaks a word presumptuously in my name, which I have not commanded him to speak, or who speaks in the name of other gods, that same prophet shall die.
These prophecies were fulfilled in one person, Jesus Christ. The prophecies range from where He was to be born (Bethlehem) to how He would live to how He died for the redemption of mankind.
I Corinthians 15:3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;
4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:
A discussion of prophecy and fulfillment falls under the mathematical category of probability.
There are probably many in the financial or academic or corporate world who would disdain to purchase a lottery ticket, knowing that the stakes are against them. Lottery tickets usually only involve a few numbers, perhaps up to six or seven.
Yet the odds are far greater, and the risk not money, but eternity and heaven, when ignoring the 300+ prophecies regarding Jesus.
There are those who will eagerly look at the probability of the direction of the stock market, or commodities, and put credence to crunching those numbers and trajectories.
Probability is probability. If the mathematics of probability is to be believed in one area, then it should also be applied in the area of the prophecies regarding Jesus Christ. And if the prophecies, under honest examination, prove themselves to be true, which they do, then the claims of Christ must be believed.
To refuse to believe in probability because the topic is Christ, rather than the stock market, is to indicate that the issue of reluctance to believe is not mathematical probability, but something else.
The way true prophets knew what was going to happen was because of their obedience to God, they had a strong connection and relationship to God, and could hear the Lord’s voice.
The format for each blog post is this. The prophecy, as given in the Old Testament, comes first. The fulfillment of that prophecy in the life of Jesus Christ, as given in the New Testament, is listed second.
Because there are so many prophecies, it will be several years before they are all posted on this site (this is being written in 2020), as they are being posted at the rate of one a week. Keep coming back.
Again, the important thing to realize is that which the Bible itself says about prophecies. The prophecies in the Old Testament have been fulfilled in Jesus Christ, they have come to pass.
Deuteronomy 18:22 When a prophet speaketh in the name of the LORD, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which the LORD hath not spoken, but the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously: thou shalt not be afraid of him.
Isaiah 53:5 (KJV) But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
2 Corinthians 5:21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.
Hebrews 2:9 But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man.
Isaiah 53:4 Surely he has borne our sickness
and carried our suffering;
yet we considered him plagued,
struck by God, and afflicted.
Matthew 26:66 What do you think?”
They answered, “He is worthy of death!”
Matthew 27:41 Likewise the chief priests also mocking with the scribes, the Pharisees, and the elders, said, 42 “He saved others, but he can’t save himself. If he is the King of Israel, let him come down from the cross now, and we will believe in him. 43 He trusts in God. Let God deliver him now, if he wants him; for he said, ‘I am the Son of God.’”
Isaiah 53:4 Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
Matthew 8:16 When the even was come, they brought unto him many that were possessed with devils: and he cast out the spirits with his word, and healed all that were sick:
17 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses.
